Its pay day for Tony Fernandes, Sir Richard Branson will be putting on his AirAsia flight stewardess uniform on the 1st of May 2011 as part of their bet when both the tycoon’s entered F1 with their respective teams . Lotus edged out Virgin towards the bottom of the standings, so it’s Sir Richard who’ll be wearing Air Asia’s finest skirt and blouse. Fernandes is keen on placing his rival on a long-haul Kaula Lumpur-to-London flight.
This was supposed to happen way earlier but apparently Sir Richard had a small injury and had to postpone the flight.
You can now book that ticket and witness this awesome episode
Check out AirAsia
With the entry of Virgin Racing and Lotus F1 Racing ,two adversaries form the aviation industry make their entry to the F1 calender. Both team promises to make F1 “sexier” and to bring more challenge to the circuit. This mini war has started with Sir Richard challenging the Lotus F1 Team principal Dato Seri Tony the stewardess challenge.
In what is possibly Formula 1′s most outrageous news story of the year, AirAsia boss Tony Fernandes, whose Tune Group finances the Lotus team, has accepted a challenge laid down by Virgin’s Sir Richard Branson – whichever man is beaten by his rival F1 team next season will dress as a stewardess for his competitor’s airline.
Im hoping that the teams will come of the grids kicking and pushing like how Force India has made their mark in thier maiden races last season. This should be interesting and im for one am looking forward to the race to start from March 2010 onwards
So if you earn about 40Million annually this should excite you. Virgin Galactic is now the worlds commercial space line! Damn, never thought that traveling to space could go commercial but only someone like Sir Richard could pull it off !
